is bob barker here in the end. what is the latest, carl? >> reporter: hey,. bill:. crunch time at the capitol and the fiscal cliff and how to avert it. there was a offer from the president that signals mr. obama is prepared to give a little bit on his insistence raising taxes on wealthy americans. that jumped from incomes of 250,000 and above to 400. democrats say a big, big move by the president. whether or not that will actually go over with republicans particularly in the house is very, very open question. they're meeting as we speak over on the house side. mr. boehner and his leadership team are going to go over the details of this latest offer from the administration with rank-and-file house republicans. the unified republican leadership is key here. thus far boehner had the gop pretty much behind him. the speaker, his majority leader eric cantor, his whip, kevin mccarthy and budget chairman paul ryan have been very, very strongly locked in arms as they're negotiating with the president giving boehner an opportunity to go down there and saying what could be a feasible deal
with disabilities after senator bob dole made an appearance pleading for passage in his wheelchair. and they just ignore -- they set a low and they ignored him. >> susan? >> i'm going to say again the fiscal cliff because fun the watch but frightening for taxpayers and damaging -- >> ence. if you can cover this up. >> i can guarantee -- >> i agree with -- i agree with you. the fiscal cliff is the worst -- i mean they know what they got to do. they just don't want to do it because it's unpleasant. they know raising taxes and cutting spending but i -- >> i'm going to give you the worst political theater, new york governor andrew cuomo and new york mayor michael bloomberg blaming hurricane sandy on global warming. come on guys! >> he's right. >> you build houses on the shoreline and you're going get flooded whether it's a combination of high tides, storm surge and wind even by a category 1. the weakest category. like sandy. you going to get flooded. you got it pat? >> seems to >>> okay. most underreported story of 2012. pat? >> now the big media went into the tank for barack obama. >> eleanor? >> wh
to republican senator bob corker. >> there is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end. a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i actually think it has merit where you go in and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2% and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlements. >> so senator corker, john, is part of a growing number of republicans who are saying that. let's cave on income tax rates. maybe not go all the way up to where the white house and senate democrats want. but let's give some on this so we can talk about entitlement reform, reforming medicare, reforming social security. this came on the heels of some developments on friday. remember house speaker john boehner came out and said i have no progress. this isn't a progress report. i have no progress to report. but then you also saw maybe the white house signalling that they're negotiable on just how much the rates go up because senator joe biden indicated that as well. >> and m
>> bob: yesterday, senator from hawaii, excellent man who died and yesterday he was lying in state. at the capital. there is a picture, poignant one of bob dole, the former senator from kansas. a great man. who was standing -- do we have the picture of dole? standing at the casket, saluting. they are two great americans. it wish him -- i wish him a great trip to heaven and bob dole, a wonderful human being. >> kimberly: that's it for us at "the five." set the dvr for the christmas special monday at 5:00 p.m. eastern. for all of us travelling home for the holiday. have a great trip. good night, everyone. >>> this is a fox news alert. i'm john roberts in for bret baier this friday evening. president obama came out moments ago to address the fiscal cliff. saying he still thinks a deal could happen. but that now is not the time for self-inflicted wounds. this is after house speaker alternate way out didn't make it to a vote in the house. we have fox team coverage. ed henry focuses on a tale of two white houses with messaging. but first, mike emanuel looks at where the republican goes f
in the room and how chris christie answered it on national television. [ male announcer ] this is bob, a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring mens bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat
all she's got, and just like spock, they want you to live long and prosper. bob in florida, bob? >> caller: hey, big boo-yah to you, cramer. >> right back at ya. >> caller: first thing i want to do is thank you quick for all you do to demystify the market for people. >> that's my goal. thank you. >> caller: i'm guessing i'm not the only senior citizen living on social security that depends on a portfolio of dividend stocks as a supplement. i'd like to get your take on the future of the income stream that took me so long to create. with one stock in particular, windstream. >> i'm worried about windstream. and i read a lot of the analyst reports and they say, listen, you should be worried. when i have everyone telling me to be worried, i'm not someone who whistles past the graveyard. i say ain't worth it. >> sell, sell, sell. >> john in new york, please, john? >> caller: hey, how you doing, jim? i was wondering how you feel about nokia being that they signed on to china mobile. >> everyone's all of a sudden very excited about nokia. it's on a run. i understand a $3 stock can go to
bob corker is involved with one of those. we'll play that for everybody in a little while. the big question after this, where does this investigation go. >> reporter: there are at least four tracks to this investigation. this is really the beginning of the second chapter. first and foremost is the testimony from secretary clinton expected now in the middle of january because only she can address this missing policy piece. why it was that we had this limited security footprint on the ground when it showed this rising threat from al qaeda and these other islamist groups? second is this justice department or criminal investigation. we heard from the head of the house intelligence committee yesterday, my knowledge rogers, that investigation is essentially nowhere. the third piece is the size, the depth and breadth of the cia operation and the fourth and perhaps foremost, are the quality of these warnings that our reporting at fox we were able to show there was an emergency meeting in benghazi one month before the attack that was passed on to headquarters here in washington and they act
the tremendous service and career of bob morton. a 22-year veteran of the washington state legislature who recently announced that he was going to be retiring at the end of the year. he was first elected to the house in 1990 and then he was appointed to the senate where he currently represents the seventh district, including stevens, and parts of spokane county. he owned a small logging business and ran cattle while also preaching at his local church and serving the community. but bob is not just an outstanding legislator for eastern washington, he's also a close friend. a mentor and the reason that i got into politics and public service in the first place. as an elected official i've worked with him on countless issues and his advice and friendship has been invaluable. he's recognized for his leadership and knowledge, good forest management, no one knows western water law better than bob and he's participated in most of the negotiations over washington water law. bob and his wife linda have five children, 11 grandchildren and i know they're looking forward to spending more time with them
is hillary clinton's testimony. both senator bob corker and senator lindsay gramm have now said, there should not be a new secrettry of state and tell hillary clinton testifies. this certainly incentivizes john kerry to find some time on hillary's busy schedule in the next week or so and see if they cannot give her up there. this report does not answer a huge range of questions. the mainstream media after three months has paid his no attention so think it's hard, but i think the fact is that the policy failures that ended up in that tragedy in benghazi have not been changed and with gary in office, every prospect is they will simply continue down the same road which invitee more tragedy. lou: it is a chilling that this 3-month of stonewalling has succeeded to this point and that there is no indication irrespective of the appearance of secretary clinton. let's hope that i am being overly skeptical here, but irrespective of her appearance before congress. we will soon see a break in the stone wall. lou: i don't think they're well. when they come back there will be a new government, and e secret
away. we miss him. >> rest in peace. >>> let's check in with bob on that note. hey, bob. >> china. finally something from the leadership. we have been waiting for weeks, months, remember, everyone has been waiting for them to try to find where their desks are and find out where they can live and where they can stay and sit down and get used to the furniture and look around and say what are we going to do with the economy. we've been waiting no comment. we got comment from the party chief who made a speech in beijing and talked about what was going on. he used words like expanding domestic demand. used words like supporting urbanization. this is what everyone wanted to hear. those are buzz words. those are code words for stimulus. that's what the market is reacting to today. 2% move up in china in shanghai and even hong kong stocks. they moved together. this hasn't happened in a long, long time here. the bottom line is we're finally starting to hear from the leadership. they found their offices and things are starting to move and that is certainly very, very good news because now t
of republicans, including senator bob kocorker e saying. >> a growing group of folks are looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end. a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i actually think it has merit. you go in and give the president the 2% increase that it's talking about. the rate increase on the top 2%. and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> now, it seems soledad, that the growing talk here is among row public i had c republicans saying budge on giving the rate increase to the top 2%, the wealthiest americans. maybe not go up as much as the white house wants, but give them the increase so we can move on to entitlements, talk about social security and medicare. that is a senator, and president obama's major obstacle is dealing with house republicans. >> if they do nothing, everybody's rates go up anyway. >> that's exactly right and there is growing international pressure. we heard from the head of the imf saying, if you go this route no, growth in the u.s., there is starting to be pre
perhaps by the winning team? bob is the athletic director at arlington high school that, school that lost big time. so thank you for joining us, bob. are you upset with bloomington south? >> thank you for having me. as a school we hold no hard feelings toward bloomington south. the way we look at it now our girl's basketball program is at the very beginning stages of development. we currently have ten girls in the whole program. six of those ten are playing basketball all together for the first time in their life. i'm not talking being on a team, really just playing the game for the first time. bloomington south, year in and year out is a state power. currently they're 8-1. ranked number 10 in the state. so we definitely -- we just see it as two programs that are about on polar opposite ends in the spectrum. >> brian: i would say so, but i think there's a lot of teams substantially better than their opponents. they don't win by 105 points. would you be dispint fundamental a team under injure jurisdiction won by 105? would you angry at that coach? >> well, i mean, we trust bloomington sout
in g.o.p. ranks over letting the president have higher tax rates on top earners. tennessee senator bob corker told fox news sunday that republicans should give ground on taxes and concentrate on long-term spending cuts. >> the focus then shifts to entitlements. maybe that puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves this nation. so there is a growing body -- i actually am beginning to believe that is the best route for us to take. >> woodruff: but on nbc, house majority whip kevin mccarthy countered that that approach is the wrong way to go. >> it doesn't solve the problem. the president is asking for higher rates, he's asking for more revenue. most economists agree the best way to get that is through closing special loopholes. when you close those it makes a fair tax process. >> woodruff: a new poll from politico and george washington university backed the president's position. 60% favored raising taxes on households earning more than $250,000 a year. 38% were opposed. another survey last week found that by a 2-to-1 margin, americans would blame republicans
provide greater efficiencies. we were able -- bob gates before me begin that effort, achieved about, i believe about $150 billion in savings. we've added about 60 to 70 billion on top of that, in terms of further efficiencies. we'll continue to review where greater efficiencies can be achieved. right now, and i asked, i asked that question when he first became secretary. you know, what is the role of the service secretary, vis-À-vis the service chief? and the reality is that there is an important role for them because they are civilians. civilians are involved in providing policy in their areas. they also have to negotiate a lot of the politics of capitol hill. so there is an important role for them to play in terms of their particular service. but having said that, there are a hell of a lot of other places where we can achieve savings in the pentagon, and we will. >> as the defense department deals with the downsizing the services, have you considered cuts to the number of flag and general officers? >> you know, again i think, i think that's part and parcel of, as you do force reduct
we are getting, you're going to hear from senator bob corker, republican from tennessee, his big point is insisting that hillary clinton still testify about what happened there. and then senator john kerry, who believes based on the report that you read, that the department of state has already taken a number of steps forward in a positive way. first corker, then kerry, reaction now. >> there is no question that there were people within the state department that were remiss and did not execute in an appropriate way. there are also some cultural issues, and, i mean, there were no doubt numbers of problems. and i would just say to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify tomorrow in an open setting. i do think it's imperative for all concerned that she testify in an open session prior to any changing of the regime. >> i think the department has taken a huge step forward to address the lessons learned from benghazi, which are important to everybody. you know, there are 70,000 employees over there. there are 275 different posts. people are at risk, it'
's check with mary thompson, on the floor in for bob pisani today. >> weakness across the board. weakness in the nasdaq, down about 20 points. the dow lost in early trade. a little more modest in the s&p, down 4.25%. traders saying the fiscal cliff headlines will continue to dictate trading. and here there was a little reaction in the futures market ahead of today's opening bell on the data and the better than expected production numbers. overseas, last night we did have some more bad news out of japan with business sentiment there weakening. as melissa was mentioning earlier, positive news on the manufacturing front in china. that's giving a lift, as she pointed out, to a number of mining stocks. while it's also giving a lift to energy, or to oil prices this morning, i should point out, some of the big name oil companies were a little bit lower in early trading, again, those being exxon as well as chevron. the traders said the bid in the market remains strong despite concerns about the fiscal cliff in large part because the investors remain positive going into 2013. this is the markets r
that teachers be armed as well in the classrooms, governor bob mcdonnell who thinks that might be a way of mitigating the circumstances or stopping or preventing this kind of prajdy. something has to be done. >> alisyn: that's ratcheting it up further, to have teachers armed in the school. but to the flip side of what you're saying in terms of it may or may not work. it's a deterrent and if you think having armed guards, that's almost impossible to measure. how do you measure something that didn't happen? it's hard to know to protect. >> kelly: also i like facts and i like statistics, i'm into that and you know, the facts are if you have a gun in your home, that you are not likely to get to it in time. so, the idea that you have a gun in each classroom, chances are you're not going to get to it in time it and the problem, if you have a gun in the classroom, don't the other students then know that, aren't they aware of that. if you have a students like adam lanza in your class and they're aware of a gun in your classroom and where the key is kept, it raises prickly questions, not easy t
these people up you can't say bob, it's not the end of the world. [ laughter ] >> that didn't happen. >> that was supposed to end yesterday, right? >> yeah. >> here we are. >> good thing we are here. >> wow! >> wake up. the world did not end. >> how many children will be born in nine months. >> storm babies. hey, we had a hurricane irene baby. is that tmi? at least we're not live on television right now. welcome back to "fox & friends" this morning. >> let's talk about the fiscal cliff. of course, it has all of washington and the country on tender hooks. there is always a theory that some people would actually want us to go over the fiscal cliff some democrats because they would finally get the defense cuts that they have been clamoring for and it would actually serve their purposes. i dismiss that. >> to be fair, we have even had some republicans who have said that that they want. members of the tea party don't want to have anything to do with -- they want us to go into default. they want us to face these problems. howard dean on the democratic side saying, look, if we don't do it,
